"Never forget what a person says to you when they are angry."
Henry Ward Beecher (via h0odrich)

"However mean your life is, meet it and live it; do not shun it and call it hard names. It is not so bad as you are. It looks poorest when you are richest. The fault-finder will find faults even in paradise. Love your life, poor as it is. You may perhaps have some pleasant, thrilling, glorious hours, even in a poorhouse. The setting sun is reflected from the windows of the almshouse as brightly as from the rich man’s abode; the snow melts before its door as early in the spring. I do not see but a quiet mind may live as contentedly there, and have as cheering thoughts, as in a palace."
Henry David Thoreau, Walden (via observando)
"Take it easy, but take it."
Woody Guthrie (via observando)
Spoiler alert: adulthood is 96% of you going “well, I hope this is how it works and I’ll keep doing it till someone yells at me”
When the sin is absorbed and becomes so much part of the whole
then the spirit no longer takes control.
Challenged by the temptations, and lit by the vibrations
feeling is so well known.
Take from me, I’ll take from you
return to me from you, do.
Cynicism is not always part of the routine
though the poets can declare they rather prefer its sound.
